I am buying one because I'm excited about gaming. I'm excited about standing in a line and rushing home to unpack my box (PS4 of course).

So I"m not reading your piece. Love me some next-gen console launch excitement!

Standing in line? Eww. I'm staying home and waiting for my Amazon preorder to arrive :p

I agree im going the same with my Xbox one cant wait to get hold of my new consoles but then again I cant wait to get hold of Forza 5, GT6, Ryse, Mario 3D, Pokémon X, DK, Sonic, Zelda HD more as this is the reason why I am buying the consoles.

Wasn't planning on getting either at launch anyway, going to wait for a bigger game library.

To be honest, most of next-gen games that I want to play isn't coming out at launch, so I can wait. In the meantime I can actually play GTA5 and finish it [when it releases etc] :)

I guess these are valid reasons for some but I am not sure i can wait 6 months or a year to buy a next-gen console.

reasons are indeed valid, people don't think about what would happen if we didn't buy them.

''Hey guys, let's boycot Sony and Microsoft for 6 months, so when we return to them they're bankrupt!''

Well I personally wont because Infmaous:SS is not a launch title. And theres still at least 4 or 5 current gen games I wanna buy some of them coming in 2014.

My struggle will be this holiday deciding between a wiiU and PSvita. I know theres gonna be deals for both and, they will get overshadowed by next gen. wiiU is gonna hit its stride pretty soon but, theres still a few games I want on Vita.

Since you're getting the PS4 I'd get the Vita.
